Video Rewind by The Rolling Stones is a compilation of video clips recorded between 1972–1984. Instead of just presenting unrelated clips and videos just strung together, it uses a framing 'story', featuring Mick Jagger and Bill Wyman, directed by Julien Temple and includes some video directed by Michael Lindsay-Hogg. It was first released in 1984 on the VHS, Laserdisc, and CED Videodisc format by Vestron home video.

Framing footage

The video starts with Bill Wyman - who conceived and developed the compilation [1] - in a guard's uniform, making his way through the British Museum, until he reaches a buried storage room with the label, "Exhibit of Ancient Antiquities". He gains entrance with an American Express Gold Card. Inside the room is a plethora of rock memorabilia. Wyman walks through, making comments on some of the items - " A Gary Glitter chest wig.....authentic!". On seeing a c.1965 Paul McCartney jacket with a MBE on it, he comments, "They never did give us one of these, did they?" - and takes it from the jacket. He sits down at a computer terminal, and pulls up the first video. After the first video, he remembers that something might be in the room. He pulls a cloth off an exhibit - which is Jagger - in suspended animation wearing a c.1973 stage outfit. Wyman wakes Mick up, and they go through the exhibit, 'playing' videos on such things as a microwave oven and an old TV, but mostly on Wyman's stylized computer, making pithy comments all throughout: MICK: "Bill, you ever try and sleep in the same room as Keith?" BILL: "No..but Ive tried to sleep in the same hotel as him!', and so on. The piece ends with real museum guards crashing through the locked door and carrying Bill off, Jagger still in the exhibit glass. Then the image fades to Bill being waken up backstage by Mick - it's time to go on. However, Wyman now has an MBE on his jacket.
